Prahran Town Hall. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 6 November 1914
! Prahran Town Hall. A new pioposition was before the Prahran council 011 Monday night in regard to the town hall. The finance committee reco nmended that Messrs Smith and Ogg be instructed to pre pare designs for re-building the city hall up to the west wall of the mayor's room. Cr EmblinE; said thai already two proposals had been adopted by the council. If the third one were carried, which of the three would be executed? It looked as if certain councillors wanted to carry tne position by.storm-they want to rush u start with thj building, and so throw the vote of the ratepayers back in their faces. They could.not add to the present building. They must either rebuild or leave it as it is. Cr Ginn: Yes, considering that the walls are built of rubble The mayor ruled that no action cnuld be taken until the previous resolutions were rescinded. Cr Nay lor gave notice of his inten tion to move the recision of the resolutions referred to.
A PROFITLESS VICTORY. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 6 November 1914
A PROFITLESS VICTOllY. When General Grant* invested Vicksburg in Muy, 1863, one of the most terrible sioges in history began. The assault which took place before that town on the 22nd resulted in a vast loss of life, but the town still held out. In the first days of June, 3863, a battlo was in progress when the defenders found that their ammuni tion wis giving out, whereupon it Captain Ashby was ordered to ob tain fresh supplies from the cave where it was stored. A party of soldiers was told oft to bring up the supplies, but it was found thut the boxes of ,shells were screwed se curely down, and no tools could be found to prise them open, for to hammer the boxes meant the pro bable explosion of the shells. Seeing the terrible danger, none of the soldiers would act, whereupon the captain resolved to do tho work himself, and hammered at the closely screwed-down cases. Once the hammer struck a screw, and some sparks flew ' into a keg of giant powder; but, happily, tho grains were so la...
Possibilities of Brush Invention. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 6 November 1914
Possibilities of Brush Invention. 1 The manufacture of brushes oilers unlimited fields for the inventor, both in the production of a mater ial to replace hog bristle, which is constantly growing more scarce and higher priced, and in the method of making the various sorts of paint varnish, lather, hair, clothes audi other brushes. The following information regard ing past efforts and present needs (says the " Scientific American ") may bo of assistance to any. wlio wish .to go into the matter. Probably the most pressing need is for a rapid, inexpensive method of setting paint ond varnish brushes. This setting or fastening must be | Absolutely impervious to the at-1 tion of all liquids, including water, oils, alcohol, French spirits, tur pentine, and the various distilla-, tior«; of coal oil, and should not1 necessitate the application of either heat or pressure.

THE MOHOCKS. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 6 November 1914
THE MOHOCKS. Four gentlemen of rank appeared at the Old Bailey on June 6, 1712, charged with assault, riot, andj beating the watchmen. They were described as Mohocks-a name given to a number of profligate and riot ous men who almost nightly went forth inflicting injuries on peaceful citizens. In this instance the char ges embraced slitting an officer's nose, rolling a woman in a barrel down the street, and upsetting coaches and chairs. The defence put' forward was that they were not Mohocks, but had paraded the streets for the purpose of arresting such offenders. A ver dict of but only a small. fine was imposed. The Mohocks were a source of anxiety to the authorities for several years, and a Royal Proclamation was issued, ottering a reward of £100 for the arrest of the offenders. This does not seem to have had much effect. When charges were brought against theso men of fashion the magistrate extended to them much leniency. It shows the state of the Metropolis at that period whon a p...
Saved by Stilts. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 6 November 1914
Saved by Stilts. Here is an interesting true story | o? how a pair of stilts once savod a man's life when ho was in deadly I danger. | Some yenrs ago, a certain Mr. A. H. Watson nsccndcd the famous Mauna Loa Volcano in the Ha waiian Islands, in order to watch nn eruption which was beginning. The party consisted of five people. Rearing the tree line, Mr. Watson left his companions in order to examine the southern cone. Suddenly there came a groat gush of lava which ran down close by him, and, dividing into two, hem med him in on an island surrounded by rivers of fire. It was an awful situation, but Mr. atson was equal to it. Near him was a thicket of small, straight trees of the kind known as iron u'ood, a timber which is inten sely hard and tough. He at onco set &lt;to work with his knifo to make a pair of stilts. All night he worked, and by morn ing they were ready. Mounting them, he walked boldly through the broad river of molten rock. Tho! wood smouldered, the fearful^ he...
Cards and Character. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 6 November 1914
Cards and Character. Some time ago I was talking with a distinguished man of lett«ra, who expressed surprise that any intelli gent human being couM And amuse* ment in playing cards. "Of course, I belong to several clubs/' he said, "but I am not really a clubman. On the raro occasions when I visit ono of them, I go into tho smok ing-room. There one can watch men, there one can study character; while in tho cardroom , . "My dear fellow!" I protested, "when you want to watch men, when you want to study charcter, you go to the smoking-room ! Man alive, I will undertake to tell you more about a man whom I havo met for a week at tho card-table than you will learn about him in the smoking-room in six months. Of all the places in the world, the placo to see your man as he really and truly is, the man beneath the veneer, is at the card-table." The cardrroom is, indeed, the true test of a man, and tho number that pass satisfactorily is surpris ingly small. You may meet a man regularly at lunc...
A SCOTCH MOON. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 6 November 1914
A SCOTCH MOON. All Scotsmen lako pride in their native land, but none more than the' old gardener at Duddingston. The gardenor was showing to .a tourist the beauties of the loch and of the little village. It was evening, and as he expatiated on the lovely scone and on the glories of his country, the moon rose over a hill. The old man stopped short in the middle of a speech, and g&zed at the moon in admiration. After a moment ho turned to the tourist and said "There's a moon fur ye ! I tell ye,.man, we're a grand nation !", "Absinthe has driven Binks crazy, they say." "Abaiothb-minded, eh ?V
Mixed Editorial Figures. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 6 November 1914
Mixed Editorial Figures. 1 For many years thero was an edi tor of a local paper in a littlo Wisconsin town who a sourcc of perennial joy to his renders. Ho mixed his figures worse than an absconding cashier. It is on re cord in his flies, preserved by an appreciative local reader, that* ono week, whllo rebuking some heinous charge by the Opposition, ho announ ced that "chickens," like two-edged swords; ofttimcs como home to roost."- On another occasion, in handling the case of a contempor ary, he said, "Thus, the black lie, issuing from his base throat, be comes a boomerang to his hand, and he is hoist by his own pe tard, and rinds himself a marked man." Perhaps the man never rose to greater heights in his speciality than when, penning an editorial on the sacredness of the fireside, he spoke of tho faithful watch-dog or tho good, wife standing at the door to welcome tho home-coming mas ter with honest bark," though many readers preferred his reference to tho "beacon light, rearing i...

' ROOSEVELT'S RIVER. DISCOVERY IK BRAZIL. Addressing tho 2?r>yal Ideographi cal Society in London Mr. Iloose velt described his discovery of tho new river in Brazil mado during his recent exploration. According to s."Tho Times" report he said : A COUNTRY FOU EUROPEAN EMIGRANTS.

Then for 07 days we wont with mule train and pack-horso across the . highland wildness of Western Brazil, reaching up to over 4,000ft. high.

Thoy went slowly, 'because for the first month they accurately surveyed all tho river...
Tip, or "Kip?" [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 6 November 1914
Tip, or "Kip ?" Dressed in a much-worn check suit, with the inevitable tight trou sers, and endeavouring to the best o' his ability to look as "horsey " as possible, the hurd-up individual on the "make-haste" stood. on a part of the Epsom Powns, anxious ly on the look-out for a prospective greenhorn. Presently a simple looking country' youth came along, whereupon the "horsey" man's hopes brightened. "Going to the races ?" *he would be bencfactor in the faded checks asked the other. "Yes," was the brief reply. "Then let mo put you on a good thing/' said the tipster, in philan thropic tones. "1 have come straight from the stable !" The country youth quietly pro duced four pennies from his pocket and hauded them over , to the aston ished speaker. "Come straight from the stable, ell?" said he. ./'Well, now you will be able to pay for a bed to-night, anyway !" The cat was regarded as sacred by the Egyptians; but though it may still look at a king, fe\tf are now so poor as to do it revere...
A Song of Hope. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 6 November 1914
A Song of Hope. There is a pill for every ache, a salve for every sore, so lei's re joice and never make a rumpus any more. Thero is a poultice for each head, for every pain some dope; until the doctors say we're dead, no one should give up hope. I knew a man once on a time, who hnd no store of cash; ho said this world was quite a crime, and all its glories trash; and so he got a neighbour's axe and by tho old horse trough, with sundry strong and skilful whacks he chopped his hcaclpiece off. Next week a lawyer printed ads., announcing that this knave had fallen heir to heaps of scads, but ho was in his grave. Tho darkest hour, as Homer said, is just be fore tho dawn; there's often com fort just ahead when all the hope seems gone. There is a syrup for each cough, a lance for every boil, so never think to shuille off somo yards of mortal coil. Misfortune hits us now and then, but if. we: bravely grin, she'll go pursuing weaker men and push thoir faccs in. There is a cure for every war...
CHAPTER XII. HOW THEY SLIPPED OUT OF OLD RUSTCHUK. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 6 November 1914
, . .CHAPTER XII. HOW THEY SLIPPED OUT OF OLD RUSTCHUK. There had been a few changes in his plans. Why bother 'seeking the door of the tavern when his window would serve the same end?.- It whs open, and a dozen times his brad had been thrust forth to seek fresh air, since his room hAd a distinctly stale, musty odour ; and at the same time he was in the habit of sweeping his eyes around that part of the moun tain panorama that fell within the scope of his vision. I Some clouds, harbingers of luck in his interest, had swept up from the storm nest to the south-west, nnd occasionally screened the pale mis tress of the night skies. Dugdale wished there were more : indeed, the gloomiest night would have been preferable to this one with a moon, in so far as making their cscape was concerncd, though once among the wild roads of the moun tains they might be very, glad of the illumination, with perilous preci pices encompassing them on every hand. Dugdale had boldly determined to abandon most...
CHAPTER XI. DEFYING THE WAR TIGER OF THE BALKANS. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 6 November 1914
CHAPTER XI. DEFYING THE WAR TIGER OF THE BALKANS. When this matter bad been satis factorily adjusted, and Vladimir be came a party to the rebellion against General Gratschefl's authority in the Balkans, .Owen Dogdale felt inspired with new zeal. He would have attempted the task alone and single-handed., if necessity had compelled such a thing ; but the chances of success were meagre at any time, and almost hopeless with out the aid of some one who knew tho wild mountain roads, and how by a sagacious trick those who pur sued might possibly be baffled. For it was a foregone conclusion that the chase would be hot enough to please the most fastidious, once the iron general understood how he had been mocked and defied by this stranger within the gates. Accordingly Dugdale now set about forming a plan of action. The Cossack had a bright mind, and- this was directly in line with what he considered his strongest point-action. His suggestions assisted tho tra veller not a little in making hi...
